Matt Trice - Certified Flight Instructor

Matt "Big Phil" Trice - CFI

It seems like it was just yesterday we were talking-up our own Matt "Big Phil" Trice and the way he'd passed his private pilot check ride.  Then it was Matt "Big Phil" Trice and his IFR rating.  Next came Matt's commercial ticket.  As if he hadn't pushed bar high enough already, we're talking about him AGAIN!

On Wednesday, September 14th, Matt Trice successfully completed his CFI check ride.  Shown to the left is a picture of Matt wearing his favorite power-tie, along with FAA Inspector Tim Hann.  This picture was taken right after the big test.

Congratulations Matt!
